My Own Little Paris Party for a Friend

Hi Everyone~

Today is my girlfriend Donna’s birthday, so I am making this post in honor of her. She loves all things French. Donna, I want to wish you a special “Joyeux Anniversaire a mon ami!” Her happy blog is at My Shabby Chateau--Please join me in wishing her a very Happy Birthday!

I have a new section in my Etsy store called “2 Market 2 Market” where everything is $10 and under! The little fairies in my studio have been getting things ready for the shelves...Here is a sneak peak at some of the items that have just been listed.

Shabby Book Bundle with Handmade Tags

(Female graphic is from Dezinaworld!)

Large Paris Market Basket

(Eiffel Tower graphic from The Graphics Fairy
and postage graphic is from Shabby Cottage Studio.)

A full view--and it comes with
the sheet music too! (Sold)

Paris Peat Pot

Paris Peat Pot 2

Wishing you all a happy week! And Donna, wishing you the happiest of birthdays ever!


There is one more thing I would like to add....After creating this post, there was something important that I discovered. I had made these pieces and then found out that a very special man named Ted passed away recently and he was the person who had this picture of the Eiffel Tower that came from a vintage postcard. Ted, you will be missed.

Happy Birthday to your friend Donna and I loved all your creations. Your print is hanging in our new family room and I think of you each time I see it. I ended up putting magnets on the "lovebirds" and put it on the fridge so I can see it everyday or every time I'm getting ice cream care friend.

Oh Cindy Sweetie...
So like you to be thinking of someone else. Happy Birthday to your sweet friend, Donna. I'll pop over and wish her a Happy Birthday.

Love your new Etsy 2Market 2Market. That is so darn cute. You have talents way above everything I could ever imagine. I'll be popping in to browse.

Hope you and Ralph have a wonderful Memorial weekend planned. I am off for the next 4 days. I can't wait to take it easy, and try to get rid of this darn bronchitis. I am on antibiotics, but it sure has a tight hold on me.

Hugs, hugs, hugs to you sweet one. Much love, Sherry
